The Ribbon Fairy

Hi Everyone,
Well it's Wednesday and I will be cooking my green beans slowly all day in preparation of Thursday's dinner. I am also going to try a recipe I saw on pinterest, Apple Dumplings. I will report back and let you know how these turned out.

In the meantime, I have been busy, finishing up on a few projects that I need to get done. I will put the finishing touches on them later today.

I also saw the cutest ornament that was originally shown back in 2012.These were called ribbon dolls and click here to see these cute creatures.(Saw these on pinterest the other day and I remember when they were origionally introduced) I was compelled to try my version of the fabulous creatures.

So let me ask you, what do you get when you combine a doll stamp, lop off the legs, add a butterfly, a bow and some ribbon??  Let me show you my creation.

A Ribbon Fairy 

This little magical creature was so easy to make and I decided to call her a Ribbon Fairy.

The doll stamp is a Julie Nutting image -  "Mindy" and the wings are a butterfly image from Earth Art International -(Animal Spirit Stamps) Luna Moth. I added ribbons and a bow for the filmy dress and put a loop on her back to be able to add her to a Christmas tree or hang her from some other spot. My bow was made using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool.

Stamps:  Prima - Julie Nutting - "Mindy", Earth Art International - Animal Spirit Stamps - Luna Moth
Paper/Card Stock
: White CS
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
AccessoriesRibbon , Craft-Dee BowZ  tool, Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Hot Glue Gun

I am submitting my Ribbon Fairy to the following challenges:

Well, time to get back to finishing other things. Thanks bunches for stopping in today.
